Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0948181A2] This invention uses a computer program to mine preexisting operator services configuration data located in a variety of preexisting source operator services configuration databases. The computer program either creates a new operator services configuration database from parts of existing operator services configuration databases or modifies an existing operator services configuration database. The computer program replaces the current system=s reliance upon manual data entry by data engineers to configure the operation of a new telecommunication switch or replace the software in a telecommunication switch that was damaged or requires a new operator services configuration data configuration. This invention provides accurate and timely customer information, significantly decreases the time interval for engineering a new operator services configuration database, decreases the research and data entry time, decreases the interval for lab planning and project management, improves operator services configuration database integrity, provides a cleaner operator services configuration database, reuses existing operator services configuration data eliminating double data entry, reuses some existing software code, and uses preexisting office data administration tools and provides a platform for future growth and expandability. By accomplishing these tasks, the telecommunication switch manufacturer or telecommunication switch operator saves time, money and decreases time-to-market product and service schedules. <IMAGE>
